Estimates of the cost of essential health service packages and the graduation and school canteen programmes proposed in the National Policy on Social Protection and Promotion (PNPPS) of Haiti

This document presents an estimate of the cost of three mechanisms proposed in the National Policy on Social Protection and Promotion (PNPPS) of Haiti, enacted on 12 June 2020: exemption from payment for essential health service packages, graduation programmes and school canteens. A first costing exercise conducted by ECLAC in 2020 examined 11 cash transfer mechanisms; this second exercise looks at three non-monetary transfer mechanisms. The objective of both exercises is to support the prioritization of selected mechanisms and their application in national and departement-level action plans to ensure the effective implementation of PNPPS in Haiti.
